Posting on Facebook, the Sheffield North East neighbourhood policing team wrote: “Why did he fail to stop, you ask? Well, he didn't have a license, he didn't have insurance, he was in possession of a controlled drug and tests showed he had consumed said controlled drug - that's why.

“In failing to stop he posed significant harm to the public and potentially put lives at risk driving in such a dangerous manner (added to the list).”

The team added: “We take all incidents of impaired driving, driving without the correct documentation and dangerous driving seriously and hopefully this causes others who are involved in such activity to rethink.
